Nice story, but that engine is not a "Nailhead". They were produced 1953-1966. The 350, 400, and 430 introduced in 1967 were an all new design, and are not nailheads. In 1970 the 430 was replaced with the 455.

thanks for the sharp eye!

Called "a deuce and a quarter" in street slang. 

In high school, for whatever reason these things happen, to rock a deuce and a quarter and a belted leather jacket (not Fonzie, Carlito's way) was as cool as you could be. 


Great cars, an absolute cruising vessel.

I had a 1968 Electra 225 in that very same paint color as the Mc Neil rag top, only mine was a four door hardtop.  Can't remember how many miles I put on it, but it never let me

down.  One great car.
